When a police cadet stumbles upon a dead body while repaying a mob debt, he has ten minutes to find the killer. That' the tag line for this week's featured story titled 'Bullet Drop.' It takes you to a modern day housing development where a cocky constable in training is forced to put his money where his mouth is after losing big in a mob run poker game. The first instalment of the story is fraught with tension and ends on a cliff hanger that is sure to keep the reader holding their breath until the continuation next time in Second Saturday Stories.
